Founded in 1957, the African Medical and Research Foundation (AMREF) works to improve the health of disadvantaged people in Africa as a means for them to escape poverty and improve the quality of their lives. AMREF defines the disadvantaged as people who suffer high prevalence and impact of major health problems and challenges like malaria, HIV/AIDS, adolescent and reproductive health, water and sanitation and have poor access to health care. To achieve its mission, AMREF has identified three core strategies. These are capacity building, operation research and advocacy. AMREF’s approach places emphasis on developing, testing and evaluating methodologies and systems that are appropriate, relevant, affordable and effective.
